Plant Morphology

Plants have two different ways to reproduce. The first one is vegetative reproduction. With this type all the plants that have the same parent have the same genetic make-up. This also lets plants pass adaptations on that they have abtained over the years. Plants with good genetic make-up usually spread quickly and take over an area. An example of this would be the dandelion. These plants can sprout from any part of the plant. An example of this is the potato, farmers will pick the potatoes and cut...

Growth Stages of a Rice Plant

Introduction: The rice plant has tillers which are a characteristic of grass plants; however they have recognized a way of growing the plant which causes it to create the best grain possible. Discussion: Vegetative: In this stage the plant germinates and gradually grows taller and leaves emerge at steady intervals. Germination: The root elongates through the seed coat and anchors into the soil. The primary leaf (coleoptile) also elongates and breaks through the seed coat. Early seedling...

CoCo Seed Germination Lab

Exercise Introduction Seeds are produced by the more advanced plant groups that we will study this semester – Gymnosperms and Angiosperms, which are grouped as seeded-vascular plants. While we often take seeds for granted, they are remarkable in their physiologies and very diverse in their structure and germination requirements. Seed biology is actually a separate sub-discipline in botany, with direct significance to the study of plant ecology and, of course, important to agriculture. Imagine how...

William Morris Wallpaper Design Formal Analysis

leaves. The bigger flowers are exaggerated and emphasized. All of these effects used suggest that Morris painted the flowers from real life. They appear prolific and this reminds the viewer of nature, growth and beauty. His main sources were from “plants themselves, observed in his gardens or on country walks” (Nature as Inspiration [sa]). The Industrial Revolution caused cities to grow rapidly around factories without planning. This meant that there was a lack of sanitation and an increase in pollution...

Seed and Salinity

despite the fact much of our natural landscape is naturally saline. The response of plants to salinity has been explained as a two-phase growth response. The first phase of growth reduction is characterised by osmotic stress due to salts in the outside solution, while the second phase develops after salt build-up in transpiring leaves and shows clear genotypic variation (Fortmeier and Schubert, 1995). Salinity impairs plant growth through osmotic effects, specific ion toxicities, and induced nutrient...

Effect of Different Microwave Doses on Vicia Faba Germination, Growth and Genetic Makeup

areas are affected by high frequencies of microwaves; this affects plant growth, germination and genetic makeup, which leads to a loss in crop yield, including one of the major crops of high economic importance, the Vicia faba. Abstract: Plants and their stresses have been of very great importance lately. Since there are many kinds of stresses, we only studied one, but a very important one: microwaves and their effect on plants. Microwaves are going to be the focus of our study because of the...

The Germination of Seeds of the Native Plant Acacia

The Germination of Seeds of the Native Plant Acacia decurrens Practical Report Biology 1 Introduction: In a botanical sense, “germination is the process of emergence of growth from a resting stage.” (http://encyclopedia.laborlawtalk.com/germination). Under favourable conditions, the seed begins to germinate, and the embryonic tissues resume growth, developing towards a seedling. Soils from a Cumberland Plain Woodland community were investigated to determine the presence of a soil seed-bank;...
